June 7: Sarah Kroger

Realizing music was a gift she desired to give back to the Lord, she began leading worship around the world, drawing people from a variety of cultures and church backgrounds under the banner of Jesus. With a passion for creating a safe and prayerful space through her music, her focus has always been an authentic portrayal of her relationship with God.

With A New Reality, it is her hope that people will come away knowing that it’s ok to question, to pull on the string and enable the unraveling to happen, knowing there is One who is gently mending the tangled threads back together into a beautiful, reconstructed tapestry.

Woven with contemplative songs that expose honest vulnerability along with corporate worship songs that express the magnificence of God, the entire collection offers new ways to see suffering, questions, and silence as building blocks for a new faith—one that is stronger because of the struggle. Sarah Kroger brings listeners into that newness by helping us all ponder the mystery of God, rest in the wonder, and see that questions are a sacred path to a new reality.

July 5: Jordan St. Cyr

St. Cyr dropped his first full-length self-titled album in the spring of 2022 with Seattle-based label, BEC Recordings. The project features the chart-climbing radio hits "Fires" and "Weary Traveler" - both of which offer a pursuit of hope, even in our darkest moments, to know that God gives us stories to share and encourage one another through our fires and weary travels, to give us strength in the midst of them. And it was “Fires” that quickly put St. Cyr on the map, hitting the airwaves on major networks and stations for nearly 18 months straight and reaching millions weekly and going top 5. “Weary Traveler” followed, which also became his first No. 1 hit single, taking the top spot on all radio charts.

While he continues to create music and tour, Jordan St. Cyr is really just getting started.

August 2: Sanctus Real

Change, particularly unexpected change, can sometimes be a foundational crack that causes the whole structure to come tumbling down. Survival, it turns out, depends on what you do with the rubble. After 20 years of touring, 24 radio hits and full album sales exceeding 750,000, Sanctus Real cemented itself as a trusted brand in Christian music. While the new songs are certainly influenced by the outward changes the band has experienced, the message is centered on how change can bring about personal redemption. Life is, whether good or bad, a series of unexpected moments. With the album Changed, the band communicates that nothing’s ever a lost cause in the kingdom of heaven. Stripping away what was and getting down to the one thing that matters has given the band a new voice and solidified the purpose behind it.
